Sa Galera is an ancient Majorcan manor which dates from the 13th century. It is surrounded by an amazing natural environment. The estate has been recently restored and turned into a wonderful hotel.In our search for quality and comfort, we have made an effort to respect the estate’s own style, taking lovingly care of every single detail.Sa Galera is the name of one of the seven fiefdoms into which the Kingdom of Majorca was divided by King Jaume I when he conquered the island to the Moors. D. Nuño Sanz ran the estate which housed the most important cavalry corps in the island.Its fertile fields were full of vineyards, almond trees and carob trees. Today the estate has over 5000 almond trees and houses one of the most important Pure Majorcan horse breeding centres. The Bonet-Company family have been the estate owners since 1850 and have personally participated in the restoration of the manor . They have been deeply concerned in keeping the original framework and have finally come up with a very nice and comfortable hotel with twenty rooms, each and every one of them with a character of its own. The estate is very well located in an amazing privileged environment where you will enjoy a unique and relaxing quietness, away from crowded tourist areas. Nevertheless its location will allow you to easily reach many interesting spots such as the nearest village Ca’s Concos , the towns of Santanyí and Felanitx , as well as the modern marinas of Cala D’Or and Porto Petro. And since it is located in the southwest coast of the island there are many wonderful beaches at close range, specially the beautiful beaches of Cala Mondragó and S’Amarador, which are Specially Protected Natural Areas.

If you’re looking for a sense of the real Mallorca, away from the package holidays, this is the place for you. The locally hired staff are fluent in German, English, Spanish and some French. They treat guests like family and provide fabulous suggestions for excursions (e.g. boat rides to nearby coves and beaches) from reception. Spa therapies are also available and reasonably priced. Breakfast is served every morning buffet style with an ample selection of fruit, cheeses, wonderful fresh bread and a good coffee machine. The pool is fresh, saline based not heavily chlorinated and located under olive trees in the garden. This hotel suits: hikers, possibly cyclists (though breakfast begins at 8:30 AM which may be late for some wishing to avoid the hottest part of the morning in summer); families with older children (it was great for our 8 and 10 year olds but would say babies and toddlers might fare better with more facilities catering to that age group); as well as singletons and couples looking for tranquility. There is a small snack menu available throughout the day and a Mallorcan restaurant experience opens over the weekend in the evenings Friday to Sunday - would suggest booking in advance as numbers are limited. The paella is delicious, clearly cooked with great care and must be ordered at least a day in advance. Otherwise there are some lovely restaurants near by in Cas Concos. We came back home revived and relaxed after our wonderful stay at Hotel Sa Galera!

Very nice hotel in a very quiet environment. We stayed there with our family of 5 (kids aged 3, 5 and 7). It was no problem at all that we were staying with young children, they even brought extra donuts for the kids during breakfast! we stayed in the little house on the site, wat was perfect with the kids. The swimming pool is lovely due to the slightly salty water without a lot of chemicals.
The owners are very friendly and they will help you with any request.
I woud certainly recommend this hotel!

A very cute and authentic Mallorcan hotel
From the moment I arrived to the hotel, I really loved the house, it’s a beautiful example of Majorcan original architecture. Also inside it’s very nicely decorated and with touches of authentic Majorcan furniture. The result is verya authentic, original hotel where you will feel immediately relaxed, and ready to enjoy the island. The team, it’s very small, but they are always very nice and willing to make you stay very personal.
The hotel is away from the crowded beaches of Majorca during summer but still, one can go easily to the calas for half a day and enjoy the beach.
The breakfast is very correct with products from Mallorca included in buffet.
To improve, the internet coverage but if one really wants to disconnect, maybe is an advantage!!

We booked a junior suite via SecretEscapes for us (couple + toddler (1.5 Years old)). Before checking in the staff at the reception didn’t even bother to introduce themselves but asked very rudely about the „child“. Toddler was not on booking (no option on website) and they wanted to charge us EUR 80.00 (!) extra per night. We offered to stay in the same room with our own cot but was not accepted because of antiques (?) in the room and we had to go to another room on the first floor instead of the booked room with garden access.
Not all windows had shutters and room was very light (toddler slept not well) and no coffee machine in room (available at extra charge at the bar) which is a surprising at EUR 260 a night per room.
We left the hotel because we didn’t agree to pay extra charge and negativity of hotel manager who was only worried about profits of hotel made it a terrible experience; he was clearly not happy about the rate they had offered secretescapes and wanted to recoup the difference at the guests expense.
Outdoor space, room and location is nice, breakfast was ok but overall this place is highly overpriced and should be marked as adults-only.

Dear Sir, we are very sorry that your stay was not entirely pleasant with us. Let us respond to your comments. As you say, you reserve a Junior Suite through an internet page. On this page ( as you affirm there is no option ), as in all other internet pages you only have the possibility to reserve a room with a maximum capacity of 2 people, family rooms can only booked directly with the Hotel. The surprise for us was that upon arrival there was a third person, who was a child. This for us is not a problem, because childrens are very welcome in our hotel, simply because instead of a junior suite you had to occupy a Family room, and this had an additional price of € 80 per night, for which we agreed to make small discount and leave it at € 60 per night. On our part, it is not about to recoup the difference at the customer's expense, it is simply another type of room in which a price difference had to be paid. We recommend that for future reservations you carefully read the restrictions offered on the internet pages, and compare them with the information on the hotels website. We also like to inform you that our Premium rooms with private terrace and private access to the garden can only be booked directly with the hotel, these room category are not offered on the internet portal that you reserved. Regarding the coffee machine in the room, we take note of your suggestion and we will do our best to continue improving. We want to apologize again that you have had this confusion with your reservation and we hope that it does not happen again. Kind Regards Hotel Sa Galera

Hotel Sa Galera is a wonderful country hotel, originally a 13 century manor house retaining much of its original character enhanced by a heightened sense of the style
and taste of the furnishings.

The management and staff are caring, warm, personable and attentive. Maria made us feel immediately welcome and made recommendations for restaurants and beaches as well as other useful information. The hotel kitchen was excellent providing large breakfasts and good menus for lunch and dinner. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean and the swimming pool was a joy.

The ambiance of nature with its utter peace and only bird song was a restful contrast to every day life and added to the magic of Sa Galera.

Thank you for our lovely stay. We hope to return.

This is the second time we have stayed at this Hotel now. We absolutely love it. The staff are so polite and attentive. The rooms are spotless and the fact that it is quite rural suits us perfectly.
We have dined in the restaurant and it is as good if not better than some of the local restaurants.
I would say though that this hotel is more suited to the mature traveller rather then for a family of young children. It is so lovely and peaceful. That is my opinion.
We shall return.

We had an amazing time at Sa Galera. Warm welcome and absolutely friendly staff. The breakfast included fresh fruits and regional food which was very tasty. Due to COVID the restaurant only opens during the weekend- the food was absolutely delicious. The hotel is recommendable for couples, singles and families. Definitely will come back there again.

From going to bed with a night ky you'd expect at the Poles, though to walking up with roosters, horses and birds outside your door, the hotel is simply magnificent.

The room was very clean and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and all the staff extremely friendly with a good range of languages spoken to a high degree (especially English and German).

Food/breakfast was good, with a great range of options and freshly baked bread and squeezed OJ!

The local towns are stunning and only 10 and 20 mins away, as too a number a stunning Calas.

As for the grounds and decor; these too are superb, with amazing little spots tucked away all around the property to sit, read and relax.

Perfect for a work stay, couples stay, family stay. It's away from the 'tourist' and package holiday spots.

Overall, very stylish and highly recommended

What a fabulous find. A beautiful rural boutique hotel in a wonderful tranquil setting. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We loved the pool where there were plenty of sun beds and rarely any other guests.
The restaurant was excellent and nearby village or small town of Santanyi an easy short drive to find alternative places to eat. Lovely market in Santanyi and plenty of beautiful beaches within a 20 minute drive.
Maria and her team were always available and so friendly and helpful, keen to make our stay perfect. Thank you. We shall definitely return.

A small hotel which were welcoming to our young family. We stayed in Sa Paissa which suited some independence, was spacious although limited on facilities compared to fully self catered. Enjoyed the local town and local beaches all an easy drive away.
